Explanation of Allah’s Name, Al-Muta’aalee, from Understand Quran Academy:


Allah calls Himself Al-Muta’aali— The Supremely Exalted, The Most High— on one occasion in the Quran. He’s the One who is exalted above the whole creation. Al-Muta’aali is beyond the highest, far beyond any thoughts, limits, and ideals of mankind, He is sublime and is above everything due to His might and perfection!

The Supreme One, The Highest of All

Muta’aali comes from the root ayn-laam-waaw, which points to four main meanings. The first is to be high, lofty, and exalted and to ascend. The second main meaning is to overcome and overwhelm and the third to advance and exceed. The fourth main meaning is to be eminent.

This root appears 70 times in the Quran in fourteen derived forms. Examples of these forms are‘aaliyatin (elevated), al-‘ulyaa (the highest), fata’aalayna (“then come”) and la’aali (“a tyrant”).

Linguistically, uloow points to the attribute of loftiness and a person is ‘alee when he is prominent. The names Al’Muta’aali and Al-‘Alee— meaning “Allah is the highest, above any fault, above any imperfection”— are interrelated. Al-Muta’aali is the One whose highness exceeds any limits. He is the most lofty and exalted and the One who advances, overcomes and exceeds all of creation in His being and all His attributes. He is proud and great and His glory is too high to be comprehended by us!


Explanation of the Name, Al-Muta’aalee, from Ahadun Ahad:


The Exalted, High One who is above His creation in irresistible power and might, and Who is above whatever lies the disbelievers may say about Him. The One Who is Most High; an absolute Highness in every sense. His Self is High above His creation—He ascended the ‘Arsh (Throne). His Attributes are High in degree, rank, magnificence, and are evident in their perfection. He has the Highest, greatest level of all of them, and there is nothing like unto Him in all of His Attributes.

No one comprehends the state or the manner of any of His Attributes. He is Most High by being dominant over all His slaves; the One Who Has subdued all of His creatures—everything is subservient to His will and authority. Nothing occurs nor ceases to occur except by His leave. His subduing necessitates His Living, His Might, His sovereign authority, ability, wisdom, and knowledge, all of which are His Attributes.


Explanation of Al-Kabeer from the book, “Who is Allah?“:

Verse from the Qur’an:

{[He is] Knower of the unseen and the witnessed, the Grand, the Exalted.} (Qur’an 13:9)



Allah (the Exalted) is above everything. He is “the Exalted, High One who is above His creation in irresistible power and might, and who is above whatever lies the disbelievers may say about Him.”



Knowing that Allah (the Exalted) is the Exalted fills the servants of Allah with awe. They are subdued with the knowledge that Allah is High and Mighty. Their hearts are drawn to worship of Allah (the Exalted), and they are filled with devotion to Allah (the Exalted). The servants of Allah contemplate and reflect on the greatness of Allah via this attribute and recognize their own insignificance, thereafter turning to Allah (the Exalted) in obedience, submission and worship. They fill their hearts and tongues with praise and remembrance of Allah.
